Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series L300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

The '02 Saturn L300 was my first car. I didn't know much about cars, but I would soon learn. It being 10 years old (Got it in 2012), it obviously needed some work done. The 3.0L V6 provided excellent pick up on demand, and gas mileage was pretty decent. The leather seats were in great condition, and the interior design was pretty decent for a 10 year old car. I'm about 6'0 ft tall, and cabinet room was excellent. The car has great visibility, and drivability is through the roof. I would definitely buy this car again.

I bought my 2002 L300 new from a Saturn dealer in 2001. Just turned 200,000 miles and still going very Strong! It hardly burns any oil at all. I'll be so sad to see this car go (when the time comes). There was an issue with a fuel sensor which occurred after Saturn was shut down and it took about 5 months to get the part that I needed. This was the only Major issue that I've had with the car. Based on other reviews, it looks like I got pretty lucky with my L300. I did follow the maintenance schedule so I have to think that helped a bit in getting the car to over 200,000 miles. I'll keep driving it until it dies.

Vehicle: 2002 Saturn L-Series L300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

With the V6 it is definitely fun to drive, which has an impact on the fuel mileage . . . This is my 2nd Saturn and I really like the way the driver's controls are arranged. Have put over 100k miles on it in 4 years and now has over 175k miles on it. Starting to see some maintenance issues with parts failing, but the major systems such as tranny, engine, etc are still doing fine. Annoying problem with the AC leaking into the driver's compartment, and the soft rotors have warped somewhat and essentially need replaced each time the brakes are replaced.

What's New for 2002

Safety enhancements are the big news for 2002. All Saturn L-Series models now feature standard head curtain airbags, antilock brakes and traction control. Other enhancements include four-wheel disc brakes (on all models except L100), automatic headlamps, LATCH child seat anchors and post airbag-deployment signals. A DVD entertainment system will be available later in the year along with the OnStar communications system. New options packages add even more value with features like an in-dash six-disc CD changer and automatic climate control. New 15-inch alloy and 16-inch chrome wheels round out the upgrades.
